Homework and lecture sketches

After each class, homework is assigned and posted below. This homework will not be collected; instead, the problems for the weekly quizzes will be drawn from the assigned homework. Also note that I am choosing problems from the book, for which you can find the final answer at the end of the book (to help you make sure you get the right answers before taking the quiz).

To further help you study for this class, I am posting lecture sketches. These are not a substitute for your personal lecture notes or coming to class (for instance, most details and motivation are not included in the sketches). I hope that they are useful to you for revisiting the material and for preparing for exams.
